Simone is so grateful to Frank for helping her out that she kisses him on the cheek. She isn’t sure why she did that and Frank thinks that she has done that because he is so irresistible.

She ends up crawling into bed with the closest warm body. She tells him that she slept with her best friend’s father. She felt guilty and then cut the guy loose. She felt lonely and crawled back into bed with the guy. She tells Frank that if he is smart, he should run from her. He understands now. Her father is a good man, but he hasn’t been very understanding to her daughter. He hasn’t been very warm to her either.

Myrtle is there now. Frank tells Myrtle that it looks like Simone is moving on. Frank is not going to stop her from leaving. She thanks him for that.

Frank leaves and Myrtle wants to talk to Simone first. She feels that the woman is making a big mistake. When you are drowning and someone throws you a life preserver, you should hold on to it with all your might.

Nessa has more to say to Greenlee, but she listens anyway. What is the big deal? Nessa tells her not to hate her father. She knows that he loved her with all his heart. Greenlee’s eyes get big as saucers. Nessa reminds her of a time when she was with Roger in Paris. They went to see the Mona Lisa and Roger looked at her and said that the woman in that picture doesn’t even hold a candle to my little girl. Mary got a hold of him then.

Mia comes to Jake and Leo and tells them that Trey is not to be trusted. That is all that she says to him. Jake gets her to walk with him to another floor so that they can talk. Jake wanted only to get her from Leo so that she can come clean about Trey. Nothing that she has said lately has been making sense. Jake knows that there is more to this. Jake is trying to help her but he needs more clues from her. She tells him that Trey was the one that found a family for her son, and that he is a lying user. That is it. Jake knows that she is telling the truth, but not about everything. She denies that she is holding anything back. He has had enough. He turns and heads back to work. She shouts after him to call her and he shouts back sarcastically, “Sure!” He leaves and Leo comes into the room telling her that he has been eavesdropping. He thinks that Jake was coming down on Mia too hard. She tells him that this really isn’t his business. He wants something and she can see that. He would like to have some freedom. He is being stopped as he has to be a witness against Vanessa and that is where Trey figures in. Trey is Vanessa’s attorney and he is doing something to Vanessa…trying to get the money. Mia is not sure of Leo’s intentions either. This isn’t Leo trying to get rich, but Leo trying to start a new life with Greenlee. If she knows anything that can help him bury Trey, he would really appreciate her telling him. Mia says that she will give up the information that he needs. Trey walks in and sees Leo with Mia. “My aren’t we looking cozy?” Leo leaves and Trey grabs Mia. He demands to know what was going on with she and Leo. She tells him that she is sick of him threatening her and bullying her. She tells him that this is over, right now. He reminds her that she is going to ruin her son’s life now if she doesn’t behave. Trey knows that Frank doesn’t know that he has a son, and if he knew that he had a son he would try to get custody of the boy. Does Mia really want to do all that? She warns him to leave the boy alone. Mia turns to leave the room and finds Frank wheeling in a little boy with a really big afro into the room.
